One day
one word
brings applause and wild delight.
Two day
no one cares.
……..(been there.  done that.)
Only a sentence will do.
When that novelty
is worn like a very old sock,
a song is wanted.
A ballad.
An epic.
With clever phrases
……..(not too obscure, please!)
, metaphors & similes
……..(not too conventional, mind!)
, personification
……..(don’t anthropomorphise!)
, alliteration
……..(don’t twist our tongues!)
. Always expecting
……..bigger,
…………….better.
……..(learn the rules before you break them!)

And here I am
still painting my life
in watercolour words.

Day One Prompt:  Write a self-portrait poem in which you make a specific action a metaphor for your life.

This was DIFFICULT.  Or maybe I was over-thinking the whole thing.  🙂

We are on our way!  Thirty days, thirty poems!  Why not join the journey!!!
